If you could change history, would you?

 

We all know the past
is the past, but what if you could change history?

We asked eight historical
authors to set aside the facts and rewrite the history they love. The results
couldn’t be more tantalizing.

What if Julius Caesar
never conquered Gaul?

What if Arthur Tudor
lived and his little brother never became King Henry VIII?

What if Abigail Adams persuaded
the Continental Congress in 1776 to give women the right to vote and to own
property?

Dive in to our collection
of eight short stories as we explore the alternate endings of events set in
ancient Rome, Britain, the United States, and France.

An anthology of the
Historical Writers Forum.

Stephanie Churchill

After
serving time as a corporate paralegal in Washington, D.C., then staying home to
raise her children, Stephanie Churchill stumbled upon writing, a career path
she never saw coming.

As
a result of writing a long-winded review of the book Lionheart,
Stephanie became fast friends with its New York Times best-selling author,
Sharon Kay Penman, who uttered the fateful words, “Have you ever thought about
writing?” 

Stephanie’s
books are filled with action and romance, loyalty and betrayal. Her writing
takes on a cadence that is sometimes literary, sometimes genre fiction, relying
on deeply-drawn and complex characters while exploring the subtleties of
imperfect people living in a gritty, sometimes dark world.

She
lives in the Minneapolis area with her husband, two children, and two dogs
while trying to survive the murderous intentions of a Minnesota winter.
